Now we also have a Praxinoscope to accompany the Zoetropes come take a look and have a play.
As part of my contract as intern I was given some funding for professional development. With this funding I chose to explore other forms of puppetry and did a week long course at The Little Angel Theater in London. For anyone who enjoys puppetry or working with their hands I highly recommend it. It was a five day course making a three man prototype designed made and taught by Peter O'Rourke (please see link below for further details). During the course I learnt many new working techniques and used a verity of tools which I hope to incorporate in future work.
